In 1929, Lillian SCHWARTZ (originally Leah SZWARCBORT) arrived early at her fiance's apartment to find him putting in his teeth. This was unacceptable as her major critera for a husband were having his own hair and his own teeth. A friend persuaded her to take a vacation to think things over, so she took a ship to Havana. There she met Szymek CHLEBIOCKY, who was apprenticing as a watchmaker. She mailed her engagement ring back to Toothless in New York. Lillian and Szymek (later known as Simon LUBOWSKY) married a couple of weeks later.
My maternal grandparents had a very happy 38 years together.
